Welcome to the Let’s Celebrate Sneak Peeks from Honey Bee Stamps. And truly, it is something to celebrate! The release will go live on Monday, May 3rd after the release party on IG and FB that starts at 8p Central.
I chose to share a few of my very favorite things from this release today AND something that I’m crazy excited about. My card uses the Fancy Frosting Stamp Set and coordinating Honey Cuts Die, the Inside: Snarky Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set, and the Team Tie Dye Paper Pad (Release links will be live on May 3rd after the release party)
I thought that a celebration card was the way to start so I pulled some balloon images from the Fancy Frosting Stamp Set and stamped them onto watercolor paper. This stamp set has everything you need for birthday cards, cake, balloons, frosting words, cake, oh and cake! But the balloons were perfect for me! Especially that striped one!
I loved the idea of using the same stripe colors as the patterned paper I chose! Out came my Daniel Smith watercolors and I got to coloring. But here is the deal…I actually knew exactly what colors to use because I’m the one who created this pattern! (Colors listed at the end of the post)
The Team Tie Dye is just that! The team sent designs into Melissa and she chose a beautiful array to turn into a paper pack. Side by side I have the original that I colored and sent in and then the pack version. The gorgeous art in this pack just blows me away and knowing that each was hand created makes it incredibly special!
The sentiment on the card front comes from the Fancy Frosting set but the inside comes from a new and fun set intended to be a bit sassy. We all have those folks on our mailing list that appreciate the humor and you are going to love having this choice (and there is another inside set that is a bit more traditional too).
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you enjoy this peek! Let me know what you think about my card and my paper design.
Daniel Smith Watercolors: Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange Hue, New Gamboge, Hooker’s Green, Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), Indanthrone Blue, Quinacridone Purple
